"Oh, well," she said, "I guess I'll apply the whole can after all," and she upended it over the upper section of the newly covered roof and applied the roller with a will. She was able to get it spread out before it got too dark to see, but only barely. Before coming down off the roof, she tossed the paint roller-on-a-stick off the roof, where it landed in a convenient bush.
After I helped her down the ladder, we went to retrieve the roller. To our consternation, we couldn't find it. In the deepening twilight, it had buried itself so well that it was invisible. However, after about five minutes knocking around in the bush, we finally found it, not in a part of the bush where we both thought we'd seen it land.
The Grey Goo (which stinks to high heaven) needs time to cure, and today should be pretty good for it, with light breeze and mostly sunny weather. I have to take the van to the dealership to diagnose the engine-light problem, but maybe this evening Lisa will have an opportunity to take a second bucket of Goo to cover the lower section of the newly-covered portion of the roof. After that's settled, the next task will be to lay down the roof covering on the rest of the roof, working toward the back of the house, and leaving the newly-gooped sections to cure for a day or two before coming back to lay down White Goo overcoat.
The weather is cooperating other than the fact that it's simply too hot in the direct sunlight to do the work, so our work window is only a couple of hours wide, and it's at what we normally would consider dinner time, which is inconvenient to say the least.
